about this. romney and ryan are saying that the president of the united states states sympathizes with terrorists. it should be shocking, yet again they are trying to paint president obama as the other. governor romney also attacked the president's american values. >> a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values an apology for america's values is never the right course. a statement which is akin to an apology is disgraceful, to apologize for american values. >> it's absurd, of course. here's how president obama talked today about his real american values. >> to all those who would do us harm, no act of terror would go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world, no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. we're a nation bound together by a creed. the idea that all men and women are created equal, that we are all endowed by our creator with certain rights. >> the most powerful nation on earth is to defend and attack and advance our people but also to defend and protect and advance tho

to be president of the united states and you're going to sit here and invest your money overseas and not invest it in the united states, what kind of leader or you? you take care of the people who elect you. you take care of the people who have faith in you. there is nothing about bain that we really ought to be applauding. look, yes. sports authority and a few jobs and it was just said most of these jobs didn't even -- the wages didn't even keep up with inflation in this country. elderly people also understand too. when these countries we want bankrupt, in order for him to make money, in order for bain to make money, a lot of people's pensions went down the drain and their health care went with it. people understand takeover. people understand corporate sharks. people understand something that was said in that movie wall street. for a lack of a better word, greed is good, and romney has been greedy. who in their right mind runs a campaign on labor day and invites the press to show you getting on a yacht? >> and sailing. but let me go back to you quickly, crystal. harry reid said we

united states is what do you do when you're faced with the unexpected? this is the expected, and he doesn't seem to be doing very well with it. >> when we look at the politics of this, a cnn/orc poll was released saying that 63% of all americans say, yes, when the question was asked whether he should release more tax returns. so i think, when you're dealing with tax rates, when you're dealing with fairness, especially when you're dealing in light of this 47% statement, that this is a sound political question since candidates in the past have had to do this. >> no question. and what mr. johnston said is particularly revealing. let's assume the romneys did pay 14% to 20% that the letter seems to imply, each and every year for the last 20. this year he paid about 14%. so if that were the case, then what's the reason for not releasing it? in many years, he paid more than he paid in 2011, if you believe what the accountant says. they paid up to 20%. so the damage is already done. people know, because of the way the tax code is skewed to the rich, they have a lower tax rate than they do a

give kids particularly poor kids and one out of four kids in the united states are poor. when we give them an early start, when we give them pre-k education, we level the playing field for them. we make it -- there's proof about this. everybody knows this. so when ryan and romney say they are cutting them out, what they're really saying is that only some kids, not all kids, should get a chance for success. and what president clinton said yesterday in supporting the nomination of the re-election of barack obama, he said that our country succeeds when we are about all children. when we are about all workers. we see that when we say let's make sure that all kids get a great shot. that's what created a great middle class. and that's what we have to do in terms of the day-to-day work we do with the american voters. isn't it better to spend some money to ensure that all kids get a decent pre-k, get a shot at college, than spend three or four times as much on prison. >> george, how do we deal with the people not to the level of enthusiasm we want. 62% of registered republicans are extre

attitude in various areas. but yet you want to be the president of the united states and leader of the free world for everyone you're talking about. >> well, as many people have said, mitt romney is very good at, you know, telling people in the room what he thinks they want to hear. and so you're sitting in a room, in a very wealthy man's home in boca raton where everyone is has paid $50,000 each to listen to you speak. you kind of think maybe they want to hear that the women on "the view" except for elisabeth hasselbeck are sharp-tongued and hard to get along and whoopi goldberg said she would vote for me, ooh, what have i done wrong. and as you played out, they all laughed at that. so mitt romney in that room and on univision yesterday and probably on the set of "the view" in october is going to say exactly what he thinks the audience in front of him wants to hear as a way of getting their support. whether it's monetarily or electorally. >> but when you look at the polls, when people were asked who connects well with ordinary americans, president obama leads romney by 43 points. ques

to be the president of the united states. this morning all of us were shocked to learn that chris stevens, our ambassador to libya, had been killed in an attack there, along with three other american diplomats, all murdered in what u.s. officials are now investigating as a possible terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11. while americans mourned, mr. romney saw a political opportunity. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. in my view, a disgraceful statement on the part of our administration to apologize for american values. >> sympathizing with them all, apologizing for our values? this is rough talk and ugly stuff and president obama responded. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here. governor romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that, that it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the

of the policies that he would want to pursue as president of the united states. when you are president you can't afford to leave things off the table. to not talk about afghanistan, not talk about iraq, to not talk about medicare, to not talk about social security, it is to basically ask you the american people to vote for you, literally as a blank slate. in the case of governor romney, a blank etch-a-sketch. the problems facing the country are so big -- the american people -- i think the consideration that they will come to is should we take a chance on someone who is a blank slate. compared to the guy that's in office now. >> i will have to leave it there. thank for your time tonight. be sure to catch steve on "the cycle" weekdays at 3:00 p.m. eastern on msnbc. coming up, there he goes again. the marathon man. paul ryan running to new lengths to strength the truth. >> what they are trying to suggest is that i said obama was responsible. that's not what i was saying. read the speech. >> read the speech? sir, we all watched the speech. it is not getting better with age. plus,

united states, mitt romney! ♪ ah freak out so chic ♪ ♪ freak out ah freak out ♪ >> no, no, they weren't actually playing "freak out" but they might as well have because his party is in panic mode. rupert murdoch is back to giving advice on twitter, telling romney to stop fearing the far right which has nowhere else to go, otherwise no hope. that's mild compared to murdoch's paper. "the wall street journal" headline today, the gop candidate might try explaining his policies. just a thought. at this point conservative columnist byron york writes, republican nervousness threatens to turn into a stampede. even the far right blog newsmax seems to have thrown in the towel. the poll on their front page asks, can romney make a comeback? other than that, everything is great with the romney team. no, i'm kidding. just listen to the right wing talkers. sound like desperation. >> if obama wins, let me tell you what it's the end of, the republican party. >> if you can't beat barack obama with this record, then shut down the party. >> if the republican party cannot win in this environment, it has to
